Debate turns ugly, gets personal
Healthy debate turned into personal attacks between councillors at the Town of Cambridge council meeting on Tuesday, July 26.
Tempers flared and things got heated while discussing the draft budget, particularly over Councillor Andres Timmermanis’ last-minute proposed changes.
A divide was cemented between leaders Mayor Keri Shannon and Deputy Mayor Pauline O’Connor.
Cr O’Connor let a patronising tone slip during proceedings when she told the Mayor to “go for it, dearie.”
Ms Shannon requested the comment be transcribed to be put on the record.
